Join us at Bouley Botanical as an award winning investigative journalist reveals the unthinkable: that everything we thought we knew about dietary fats is wrong.
This version of “ The Chef and the Doctor” – our series of health-focused, multi-course culinary experiences featuring world renowned doctors and Chef David Bouley – will feature Nina Teicholz and Chef Bouley demonstrating why meat, butter and cheese belong in a healthy diet.
Nina will discuss her revolutionary and NY Times Bestselling book “The Big Fat Surprise.” The Economist named it the best science book of 2014 and called it a “nutrition thriller.” The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Mother Jones, Library Journal and Kirkus Reviews named it a Best Book of 2014.
Nina’s presentation will be followed by a presentation-inspired multi-course dinner created and prepared by Chef David Bouley, accompanied by a wine program curated by Beverage Director Adrien Falcon.
